It's been raining cats and dogs these last few days in the Pacific Northwest... and the locals are howling with delight.  Not because of the gray skies, mind you.  It's all about the water! The entire west coast has been under siege with drought-like conditions and worrisome shortages of water.  ...

After 15 years of practicing real estate in Oregon... I'm feeling a little girlhood giddy about my future and the outlook of my business.    Some of my colleagues may be thinking... she's an adrenaline junkie who's lost her mind (i.e. If it ain't broke, why fix it?!).  Okay, I confess, I've pushe...

There's nothing worse than waking up the morning after and realizing you've been sleeping with the enemy.  A bit shocking... and oh the regret! REALTORS®... prepare to take your 'morning after' pill.  Our love nest is about to be shakin' in more ways than one.  Rupert Murdoch, newly acquired own...

It's the holidays... and in the spirit of giving, I'm headed to Southern California to solve Sony's problems.  Yes indeed, as I slave away on my iPad on the beaches of Malibu, I'll be offering some PR pointers to Sony Pictures on how to stand up to terrorists.  I'm hoping George Clooney will assi...

I've been accused (on more than one occasion) of being a curator of happy endings.  So much so, I've decided to adopt the tagline and give it a home.  I love cute stuff like that! Service with a smile comes naturally to this Naked Blogger... and in abundance.  Sometimes to the point of exhaustion...

Today, I looked up into the heavens and said... Yes, there is a God!  With little time to spare, but plenty of fret to waste, we held our breath as I presented our 5th written offer for my clients.  For a moment, I felt like Moses pleading with God... Please don't let my people be homeless! With ...

It occurred to me some years ago that settling isn't part of my DNA.  In fact, the mere idea breeds contempt in the depths of my soul.  Why so?  I probably inhaled a little too much smoke as a child.  When I was 5 yrs old, my brother turned my wooden sandbox on the side of the house, then pushed ...

You, Me & The Apricot Tree.  You know the ole' saying... The apple doesn't fall from the tree.  In my family, it's all about apricots.   It was 1939, and World War II threatened every American household occupied by teenage boys.  My father was the son of a single mother, and the youngest of four ...

There's a new buzz on the streets of Oregon.  The voters have spoken and we're now a state that allows the recreational use of pot.   Whether you agree with the people of Oregon or not, this day seemed inevitable. While I respect the medical benefits of the plant, I'm not a toker and never have b...

If you're like me, you probably aren't too keen about seeing your mug on video. Yet, it seems to be a big reason why most of us don't use video in our marketing efforts.  I know I'm not the only Realtor on the planet who still needs to jump on the video train.  Admit it... you need help too!   He...
